Cozy Wool Waffle Hat

Hi Friends,

A cozy hat is all you need to look stylish and to keep warm :)  I had a ball of Loops & Threads Cozy Wool and the colour is Velvet :) Of course it is purple , lol. You can see hints of pink and blue shades also .

This yarn is a soft chunky yarn made of 50% acrylic and 50% wool.It is available in a rich palette and is a dream to knit or crochet. The shades are warm and relaxed, perfect for making accessories :)

I only had one ball so I made a Cozy Wool Waffle Hat  :)  This look is holey but since the yarn is thick ,it still makes the hat warm :)

 

The yarn calls for 9mm crochet hook. I have been learning different stitches and techniques lately. I was looking at a waffle stitch (you can find in any crochet stitch index) , so thought I would use it for a change :)

This pattern for my Cozy Wool Waffle Hat is very simple . I started with a chain of 4 then double crocheted in the fourth chain. I made a chain 1, then double crochet back in the same space. I did more chain 1 and double crochet in the same space then joined, then slip stitch to close round.

The next couple of rounds are just increasing stitches, but the double crochet are into the double crochet .The chain ones, make the holes in the Cozy Wool Waffle Hat :)

You increase rounds until the hat fits your head then you just make rounds until the hat fits to your brow. The hat fits snug if you pull it down to the brow and depends of the size of the head :). If you want a slouchy look  pull it back some :)

 

To make a brim, I just single crochet in each double crochet and chain 1 space around. I did a reverse single crochet in the back loops of the stitches around and finish off and sew in end.

 

To give the brim an extra sparkle, I slip stitched in the remaining front loops from the brim :) Oh yeah I added beads, which are clear but have a pink,purple or blue bead inside of them :) A pretty finishing touch :)

I am very happy with the way it worked out. The yarn is really nice to work with. The glint of the beads are just the right touch :)
